I recently inherit my grandma's vanity table with mirror. Could able to me from the photo from what style and from where? The interior looks old. I want to understand this before i decided to restor the color of it. Thank you

waterfall style from the 1930s in mahogany veneer.  Made in the USA but without a lable there is no way to determine where of the 5000+ manufacturers in operation.

use a brown wax, Briwax is a good choice. it will clean and add a bit of color to marks and scratches.

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
